    Seafire Mystery

    I came across this (rather bad) image of Seafires on a carrier deck in the Mediterranean Can anybody identify the light coloured objects on the noses of the two planes. Is it simply light reflecting off the exhaust stubs or could it be pale coloured paint?
  13. Bruce, here is a Parhe newsreel film on Ansons from Youngsfield, Cape Town during the war. https://www.britishpathe.com/video/south-african-coastal-patrol-1/query/Cape+TOWN
  14. Troy, that image originates from the now defunct WW2color.com site of the late Jeffrey Ethell.
